Ahhhh! Finally! It’s time for a progress report on our brand new office and the after photos of our flooring. This space is so much quieter with a wall and a door! And it is so much prettier with our beautiful new flooring (Mohawk Concertina laminate flooring in Smokey Chestnut).

We still have our same furniture and our plans for this space will continue to unfold, but we can’t get over how much it has changed already! The new flooring really transformed the whole feel of our lower level, but I have to say this office space inspires US! We feel more relaxed, more creative and more organized. It’s even more fun to work now, so we couldn’t be happier.

I really love the matte finish and warm rustic tones of this flooring; it’s really lovely in person!

The flooring not only sets the tone for the room, but it is so durable and perfect for our family’s needs. We have a lot of activity in our house, so having flooring that can hold up to any and all activities makes sense long term, too. Someday our office may become a mudroom or a bedroom so we love the flexibility the flooring offers. The color and texture are perfect for camouflaging daily dirt and messes and give the space such a warm cozy and livable vibe.

We can’t wait to share more ideas for how we will set up our office and the adjoining rooms as they evolve. Thanks for following along!
